DEMPSEY'S EYE FIGHT TARGET Only Vulnerable Spot on His Body BT DEAN SNYDER Jack Dempsey's lame left eye will be one of the chief target* Goo-jeer Carpentler will bo ahootlng at on July 2. As far as Is known at the present time the champion's eye Is the only vulnerable spot on his superb body. His chin has never been accused of being a weak spot—not In all hi* 67 ring battle*. If the Frenchman could reach the lame eye target with one of his fly ing punches he would get a great ovation from his backer* and be will have plenty of them. It would hurt Iwmpeey's pride far more than his fighting strength to face an audience of 40,000 or 50.000 fans with blood streaming down his block muzzled face. On the other hand, Carpentler would do well to remember what happened to Jamaica Kid, the negro sparring partner who first opened that wound on the champion. Dempsey hit Ihe Jamaica lad so hard that he was out Just 15 min utes following contact. The normal fighting Dempney 1* a tiger, but the mad Dempsey is two tigers. The wound was first Inflicted two years ago when Dempsey was train ing for Jess Willard at Toledo. It healed well. Willard never had a chance to reopen It after lowing his memory in that first disastrous round. The recent rlpplrWT open of the soft eyebrow gave Iwmpsey »n awful grouch.

He'll be guarding that spot In training and he'll cover It In the big tight If he doesn't forget Hut our mess Is that Carpentler had best not rip that wound open unless he wants to fight a mad man.

Instead of an intelligent discussion of ways to cor- rect our taxation system, so that the burden of gov ernment shall lie equally distributed, there was sense-' less shouting against our schools and a demand, led by Mr. Shorrock of Seattle, that teachers' pay be returned to its former degraded level. Instead of an insistence on an economical adminis tration at Olympia, of an intelligent budget system all down the line, of a cessation of pleasure-car buying for every official from dog-catcher to governor, there were cries for a savage cutting of pay of clerks and other under-employes—and amused laughter at a sug gestion that elective officers' salaries be likewise reduced. Adjournment was the high point in constructive results attained. The tax slacker was worried at no stage of the proceedings. The pork barrel legislator was worried not at all. The over-paid political hangers-on and the grafters derived only enjoyment from the spectacle. It was another boom-boom session. Its atzer lack of accomplishment is illustrated by the fact, as cor respondents note, that Governor Hart had no trouble sleeping thru most of' it. U W V V M W «* V * HART SNOOZES AS TAX REDUCERS TRY VAINLY TO REDUCE BY lIAL, ARMSTIION'O • OLYMPIA, June 21.—Determined, they declared, to clash payrolls, weed out deadhead employes, trim office expenses and otherwise curtail spending public money next year, county and city tax-levying officials were returning home to the four comers of the state today, following Gov. Hart's, conference on retrench ment here yesterday. While seated on Ihe platform presiding, Oot. Hart went to sleep twice during the conven tion, and «w awakened by Stale Treasurer Clifford Bab cork. It came to light during the con ferencc that school boards In some part* of the state were contemplat ing building "teachcrage," or cot tages for teachers, at public ex pense. The convention, on motion of W. 11. Abel, of Montesano, rec nmmrnded they forego this expend iture and, wherever possible, defer construction of all school buildings for the present. E. Shorrock, of the Seattle school board, Introduced the salary cutting resolution. "A condition exists,'* raid Shor rock, "that Is causing a large amount of money to be taken from the pockets of the people. It Isn't producing results." Ho then pro posed the following refaolution, which curried: "Wh"reas, A very large proportion of public expenditure Is In payrolls; "Resolved, That a reduction of payrolls proportionate to the reduc tion of of living Is neces sary for the reduction of taxation." Loud protest was voiced by R. F. F&uasett, Everett city attorney. WANTS TO SKIS TAXATION REFORM "I don't want to see any salaries cut," said he. "What I want to nee Is the whole system of tuxallon changed. I want to see taxes paid by those who should pay thcui. and salaries not curtailed but raised." A small minority voted with Ff.ussett against the Shorroek reso lution. Not a word was said during the convention concerning the ruthless spending of state funds for elegant uutomobiles for stale officials. A heated battle raged all after noon uIMm ( the public schools. Sev enil speakers declared the reason public schools are costing 56.59 per cent of the total tax levy for 1921, or 120,689,160.50, is because the schools are "supervised to death." Others attributed the high cost of school operation to "frills.'' T. J. Hurrlson, Benton county commissioner, recalled that $75,000 had been spent by one school dis trict to build a gymnasium. "When the school board woke up," he added, "they foiyid they hadn't enough money left to build a house where the ordinary ■iidi ments of education could be UufihU" NIL! (KDITORIAL) After Rueben Jones, secretary of the Seattle school board, had an nounced a cut of four and one-half mills had already been made in the board budget for next year without touching the main salary llat, Di rector Shorrock declared: TELLS ABOUT EDMONDS RECALL "The facts are the budget has not been reduced at all worth men tioning. We've got to attack the payroll." He was followed by O. !». Miller, of the Edmonds. Sno homish county, Chamber of Com ir.eree, who said: "We're so interested In high taxes that we're holding a recall to get rid of our school directors because they're spending too much money. We abolished saloons. Now all the money we used to get from liquor taxes goes la the bootleggers. I can teach me high schools of this state for 75 per cent less than we're paying and give % better ser vice. Cut salaries. They'll whine for a while, but they won't quit." Jark Boyle, Snohomish county commissioner, Everett, declared: "Mr. Jones and his school board In King county are one reason for high taxes. We've got teachers who are wnltlng for nothing else than to forfeit their contracts and go to Seattle, where they get higher wages." It was bad gning for the public schools when Carl E.
